It would be nice to get Beltran...... I would counter Peavy instead of Cueto. Fowler is a throw in this deal, but you probably wouldn't be able to counter Willingham or Plouffe instead of him.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=449092

Completely agree.

If you can give him Peavy instead of Cueto then that deal would be much better for you.




Thanks for the help with mine.

I am thinking of countering with:
CC/Hellickson/Bourn for Beltran/Fowler/Kershaw.
Is that good for me?

He originally offered: Beltran/Fowler/Kershaw for my CC/Cueto/Bourn
I counterd with: Beltran/Fowler/Kershaw for my CC/Helickson/Bourn
He countered with Beltran/Lester/Kershaw for my CC/Bumgartner/Bourn
I am thinking this is moving the wrong direction.
Should I recounter with
Beltran/Kershaw for CC/Bourn? any other ideas?
He obviously wants to try to catch up on SBs. I think I can make up for Bourn by getting Gardner. IF Beltran comes back healthy I would be great on offense. In terms of pitching I think CC and Kershaw are about a push and I have Bauer waiting for a call up.

That was going to be my suggestion, actually. I like getting Kershaw, as he's the best player in the deal, so I'd be tempted even if the offer stays as is. But swapping out either C.C. or Cueto for Hellickson is great for you.

By the way, how is Panda starting in your outfield? He's never played a game in the OF.

Thanks for helping on mine.

I wouldn't do this. Fowler is nothing, so it's basically 3 quality fantasy players for 2...Plus Beltran is a huge injury risk and you'd be losing Bourn's speed.

Thanks for helping with mine.
